The meaning of good webhosting has been a mystery for me even since the day I decided to buy my own domains and move my two weeks old blog from Blogger. Before deciding for my first Website Host, I did my research based exclusively on prices. So I got to choose maybe the cheapest company, and I was very happy that I managed to get such a good deal. Until they informed me that they would prefer that I’m not using WordPress anymore for my sites, because it is consuming too much of their server resources. I haven’t changed WordPress, I’ve changed the company.
This time I was not driven by the price, but by the hosting packages they were offering. So I’ve managed to get a great package, with unlimited websites hosting, unlimited databases, unlimited email accounts… and I got a nice coupon that gave me $97 discount for the first year of hosting. But this new company had very long interruptions of the services, the sites were running slow, there were some functions which were disabled (this was a security measure, so I understood and found another way of programming those things).
Last week I had to change again the Website Host. This time I knew a bit more, and I searched for reviews to find the best web hosting company. I’ve chosen Hostgator, which was named the best reseller hosting provider by Webhosting Geeks, a directory of reviews about the most known webhosting companies. What I liked most at this site was that it also published customer reviews, so I got a chance to see what other people experienced with those web hosting companies. I just hope this time I’ll be luckier.
